Our logo may seem very simple but its more complex than it first appears.
The Colors and design are reminiscent of the yin-yang which denotes, the good in the bad, the bad in the good,thus making a complete circle of life.
To me this is also personal and two fold symbolizing not only the symbol of cancer, my star sign, but also the duality of energies masculine, and feminine, logical vs creative thinking, which is apart of my own personality as much as, it is a part of the duality of life.
The unequal sections symbolizing the two energies and the words being opposing colors to capture the same idea of the good in the bad, and the bad in the good.
The sections of the symbol also include:
(black) – 1st Quarter Germination, emergence, Beginning, Outward directed energy
(white) – 3th Quarter- Maturity, Fruition, assumption, full form of expression
A Full/New Moon
Full Moon – represents illumination, fulfillment, completion, drawing inward, unrest, emotional expression, hasty action.
New Moon – The time of new beginnings, projects that favor growth, externalization of activities, and growth of ideas.
An Eclipsing Moon
(the white but imagine it is moving towards the left or away toward the right) – During a lunar eclipse, the shadow of the Earth falls across the face of the Moon bringing unconscious feelings to the surface, grounding them in reality. Eclipses are harbingers of change — they usher in evolution. Lunar Eclipses are viewed in astrology as being deeply trans-formative times that can bring abrupt and sudden change. Eclipses are like the cosmic helping hand of the Universe. Imagine the energy of an Eclipse like a Universal hand that reaches down from the heavens and puts you where you need to be.
Its almost like an optical illusion if you stare at it long enough.
I wanted to include the phases into a single essence, since the set of 5 takes up a lot of room, this design allowed me to consolidate the entire idea into one moon.
The idea of the phases means a lot to me as the idea behind “Just A Phase” is that life is full of different phases. Some phases like sickness, that come and go are a good thing, whereas phases such as that of fertility, can be that of a wave, some relish the changes and some wallow. It’s all in the perspective. Some phases or cycles are that of stress or trauma. There are also the phases of life that one goes through from birth, through to death which too, is a part of life. There are so many and that is why I have centered my practice around this idea because life is ever changing and evolving, it’s a neutral- balanced ideology, that gains positive or negative where we add it.
